A life-long creator, Nathalie loves all kinds of art. She grew up in her dad’s pottery studio, making messes and sometimes pots. After taking a few photography classes in high-school, she chose to minor in studio art/photography in college. Her love of composition and color led her to her current favorite form of creating- with wool and timber.
Each tapestry is made over several days (sometimes weeks) beginning in the wood shop. Nathalie uses locally sourced live-edge wood that she cuts, planes, sands, stains and seals. She then hand-dyes an alpaca and wool blend of yarn in several layers. When all of the dyes are dry, she affixes each strand to the wood plank, one at a time. She then hangs each tapestry on her own wall for trimming, and to make any final adjustments. She loves the process of creating these unique tapestries.
